We are dedicated to promoting the well-being of Chelsea cats by promoting spay/neuter/vaccinations to help reduce cat overpopulation and reduce the number of homeless/stray/feral cats in the city of Chelsea. We are committed to the humane and compassionate treatment of cats.
The MSPCA has partnered with HubCats Chelsea to provide FREE Spay/Neuter packages to the residents of Chelsea for their Cats and Dogs. Packages include spay or neuter surgery, rabies and distemper vaccines, microchip, and nail trim. Appointments are scheduled Tuesday-Friday.

Traditionally, a collar and tag around the neck of your cat or dog was the sole means to identify your pet and you as your pet’s guardian—a passable precaution should your pet get lost. But now a microchip—a tiny bit of semiconducting material encoded with a registered ID number—improves upon the customary collar and provides further levels of security. How does it work? In a process akin to a routine injection, for a one-time fee, a veterinarian implants an encoded microchip approximately the size of a grain of rice just below the skin, between your pet’s shoulder blades. If your pet gets lost, the chip can be scanned to reveal your pet’s registered ID number, which will be linked in a pet-recovery database to your contact information. Keep in mind that, though it’s advisable for your pet to continue wearing her collar with tags, a microchip can’t get lost or become unreadable.
Both cats and dogs can be microchipped. Even indoor cats (typically collarless) should be microchipped—they can slip out unnoticed or bolt if they are severely startled for any reason. Microchipped pets are much more likely to be recovered and reunited with their families than are other lost cats and dogs. A microchip, while it doesn’t give your pet’s location (it’s not a tracking device), can permanently store the registered ID number in a secure pet-recovery database, where your contact information can be updated as often as needed.
Our wellness clinics in Chelsea will offer free microchipping for cats and dogs throughout the year; dates and details TBD.

What does it mean to be a “Tiny Tiger”. Here are some photos of a group of kittens that came in to Broken Tail Rescue at about 3.5 months of age needing socialization. Some call is deferalizing and I call it “fluff and fold”. You will see that with attentive foster care you can make a difference in the lives of these kittens by teaching them to play, trust and love! The first photo is when they first came in and then the last is before being ready for adoption. You can see the difference. Please consider becoming a foster home today and share this post with your friends.
